First Signs

I think we got tomorrow's forcasted weather today; clear skies with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s. Actually, it got up to 57 degrees! It was so good to see some clear skies and we were able to get out and do some long over-due cutting back of perennials. LOVED. IT. In the process, I saw the first signs of the promise of spring.

Blueberries with buds

This is the winner of the "spring is on its way" survey, a blueberry stem with its first leaves already out!


  1. Oh, I know how this makes your heart happy!

  2. The photography is really spectacular. makes me smile to see leafing already. Can Spring be far away.
